Farrington wins gold in Sochi halfpipe
February 14, 2014
"I can’t believe it," Farrington said. "I come out to each contest and I try to do a different run and that’s my approach to it. Sitting at the bottom I was stoked I landed my run and once I knew I was going to be on the podium I was happy. I was hoping to make the finals – that was my main goal, and then during finals I thought if I land a good run I might be on the podium. So to come out on top – I just can’t believe it."
Clark has now medaled in the last three out of four Olympic Winter Games and has collected more Olympic medals than any other snowboarder in history with her two bronze and one gold.
"I’m pretty excited for the medals ceremony," Clark said. "If I didn’t win, I’m glad someone from the U.S. did because we’re going to get to see our flag raised and hear our national anthem."
The snowboarding medal events continue Sunday, Feb. 16 with women’s snowboardcross qualifications and finals, where Lindsey Jacobellis (Stratton Mountain, Vt.) will fight for her second Olympic medal.
